What do you do if you’re a powerhouse percussionist in a Brazilian heavy metal band that’s sold in excess of ten million records and you decide you want to explore new musical possibilities? If you’re Igor Cavalera, you up your sticks from the Sepultura drum stool, form a band called Mixhell with your DJ wife (Laima Leyton) and long time friend and fellow producer (Max Blum) and set about making hypnotic, manically driven electronic music.
With Igor in particular being no stranger at all to vast crowds, the trio played their debut show as Mixhell in front of 5000 people at Lollapalooza in Brazil.
‘The Edge’ is the second single from the trio’s debut album ‘Spaces‘ which was released on June 10th 2013. It features two remixes. The first is a remix of the title track; remixing duty on this one in the capable hands of The Time and Space Machine. The second remix is a minimal remix of ‘Once Again’ by none other than Italian’s Do It Better co-founder Mike Simonetti.
Mixhell play the Old Blue Last in London on January 29th 2014.
